    Thank you all for the kind comments The house was quite a hit at the party, and got passed around so the adults could look at it...
    Sandy - yes, that is the wolf next to Little Red Riding Hood

    Mimi - There are some of these panels on ebay - there are no instructions. I did email the designer, and she did reply, giving me a few tips, but not able to offer instructions (seems like she is not involved in fabric anymore ).

    For the figures, I just used coordinating colors for the backs and sewed on the stitch line, leaving the bottom open.
    I stuffed them with polyester stuffing in the head and neck, then used crushed walnuts in the lower half to give them a bit of weight in the hand. I put a tiny piece of stuffing at the bottom to make it easier to close.
    For the house;
    I combined the cutting tips from here: http://www.everkelly.com/2012/07/fre...ouse-download/ (these instructions are only for a 'stuffed' soft house, but the cutting instructions are the same that you would use to make an open house...
    then I took construction ideas from here: http://uklassinus.blogspot.com/2008/...-tutorial.html
    Now, you could of course just use that tutorial and create a fun house - she also did a barn that is way too cute!

    Don't know if y'all need all this info, but it's here if you want!!
    This forum really is the best

    That is just too cute! What pattern did you use? I would love to make one for my niece to go with the paperdoll quilt I made for her
